orange silk & cotton candy mohair

The last time I photographed this cotton candy hued mohair coat was back in 2011, which feels like forever ago. I wore it then with a similarly saccharine 1960's dress covered in giant bows, and in these photos I paired with my favorite brown suede skirt and an orange silk blouse I unearthed from a pile at the Alameda Flea Market. These photos were shot over a month ago (which you probably already noticed if you follow me on Instagram) but I've been a blogging snail lately. Today I'm bundled up in a winter coat, oversized scarf, and hat with ear flaps, dreaming of those recent days when many thick layers were not a requirement!

I'm sorry I just have to say I love your hair and ask HOW do you style it?!

Bright orange and baby pink! What a great combo.

Also, if you keep trimming your hair and I keep growing mine we may just meet in the middle.
